I was wondering if it was possible to make the white eyes of my skin to glow up green in the dark?

I'm pretty sure a feature like that is unsupported in the Q3 engine. Of course, there may be a shader which could accomplish the glowing green effect, but I doubt it can be activated only when in dark lighting.


I don't know how, and I don't know why, but this is totally Sheep's fault.

You can have a texture unaffected by lighting (ie it will always have the same level of brightness regardless of light conditions), but I doubt there's a shader to turn your skin's eyes green in the dark. The closest thing you could get to that would be a different colored specular shader, but that wouldn't really do it.

Uhhh. Then explain how i did it in my Admin skin. All you need to do is make the eyes somewhat green. Feel free to use the shader i made.

Because your Admin skin doesn't do what he wants to do :rolleyes:

Do you understand the concept of glowing in the dark? It means it doesn't glow. Unless it's dark.

Ah. Well you can certaintly make the eyes a specular shader. In a mod i submitted to jk3files 2 days ago, there is a skin that is enirly unaffected by light. You can use that shader if it comes out soon.

You can also find that shader in the default game shaders, in players.shader, I believe. It is used for the Jawa eye "glow" (not a glow at all, as glow is not possible in JA without the use of dynamic glow, which does not work for all graphics cards).
